Afka was founded by Vendula Niklová in 2022. Growing up in a family of dressmakers, she'd piece together fabrics that were lying around in the workshop. Later, in design school, she thought: "Why spend money on brand new material when I can repurpose what I already have? And why stop at one final look, when I can invite the wearer’s creativity to the process?". Later, she founded Afka with the same thought.

Eco-friendly: Afka upcycles deadstock materials into new items. Extra cool is that the clothes are morph to fit and hence, you can wear one item in different ways.

Fair & local production: The items are made in a workshop in Prague, Czechia. They pay a wage that's more than double the minimum wage and the workers are united in a trade union.
